HMH is a "Great Nonprofit" because we are continually striving to better our organization. Although we have already accomplished so much, I believe our true work is yet to come. As a board member I am constantly thinking about what direction our work should be taking and how best to help the Haitian people. It is our collaboration with our partners in Haiti that makes us a unique organization and ultimately one that is able to make a lasting difference.

I am proud to be a board member for Health Ministries for Haiti. We continually strive to do our best for the individuals that we serve and provide an educational and inspiring experience for our volunteers. Although we are a young nonprofit we have made great progress that is shown not only in our outcomes but also in our philosophies. We truly try to make a positive difference in every life that we touch.

I feel very fortunate to be part of this wonderful non-profit. Everyone involved are dedicated professionals working extremely hard to improve Haiti as a country and the communities that we serve. The Haitian people are our neighbors, our friends, and our family. I look forward to continuing the work that we do in HMH and can't wait until I have the opportunity to go to Haiti again.

I encourage anyone reading this to donate to this wonderful organization to support this on-going work but, most of all, I encourage you to volunteer and work with us.

I found HMH by chance when I was asked to help in a fundraiser and am so touched by the stories of the people that have gone to Haiti and hope to one day be there myself to help. It has been an honor to help raise money for an organization in a place where my roots are. This is such a fabulous group and I am truly blessed to have gotten the chance to be part of it.

I support Health Ministries for Haiti, Inc., because I know one of the people in charge of managing the funds and the programming for those kids. I am certain that every penny of my donation goes directly to the children who have such deep need, and that the children are benefitting more and more each day from the work this organization does. It is truly a grass roots ministry, formed by people who have deep faith and huge hearts.

I became a board member of Health Ministries for Haiti in 2009 with the expectation that I would assist with fund raising in the United States. After selecting a child to sponsor at the House of Jesus' Children orphanage in which Health Ministries for Haiti is affliated, I felt an overwhelming need to meet this child. I traveled to Haiti in January, 2010 with HMH and cannot describe what meeting this little girl meant to me. We were in Haiti when the earthquake struck and I saw first hand the positive impact the medical team of Health Ministries for Haiti had on the injured victims of the earthquake. Health Ministries for Haiti is dedicated to the gracious and resilient people of Haiti. I have an unending passion for the children that live in the House of Jesus' Children orphanage and work as coordinator of the sponsorship program that HMH started.

I support the work of HMH because it addresses the root causes of poor health outcomes. They work closely with the orphanage to participate in the children's educational and health care needs. They also provide training for community health workers to learn preventive health education for sustainable and ongoing support. While they travel to Haiti to assess needs, engage in clinic-based activities and develop plans with their Haitian partners, much of their efforts involve fund raising to provide financial assistance for basic needs: food, shelter, healthcare supplies. I feel this model of service delivery can help to empower community members to identify how to best meet their own health care needs.

As a donor, I am thankful for the work Health Ministries for Haiti, Inc. is doing in Haiti. I appreciate feeling connected through the stories they share of the work they're doing to increase social and health equity in partnership with the Haitian citizens. I know that that my donations are also being applied directly to increasing access to healthcare and supporting a sustainable healthcare infrastructure. As a practicing public health nurse, it is wonderful to have this opportunity to support innovative work in global health.

I am a proud mother of a board member for HMH. My daughter first went to Haiti while she was still in nursing school. It had such a profound and enlightening impact on her that she has been back to help four more times, including a trip to help and deliver supplies after the earthquake. She is now a nurse and is able to further use and share her skills in ways that benefit so many. She has developed many close friends and deep bonds both here and in Haiti that will last a lifetime. HMH is a great vehicle to deliver much needed help with an awesome team of unique and caring volunteers.

HMH has given me the chance to practice a new skill in my public health curriculum: grant-writing. Jen has been very supportive, both finding potential funders for me and following up on the work I've done. It's frustrating how difficult it's been to find funding to build a hospital in Haiti, but I suppose this just means more practice for me, as well as better insight into what the available pool of funders wants to fund these days.

Health Ministries for Haiti is one of the best organizations that I have been apart of. I have been on several trips to Haiti through other organizations and HMH is by far the best of them all. From the leadeship to the volunteers, the people are truly serving the Haitian people with all of their hearts. I am proud to say that I am serivng as a board member. We continue to grow and implement new strategies to not only help the Haitian people but also to make sure that HMH will be around for the next generation. The more people that get involved and travel to Haiti, the more we can do for them. Travelling to Haiti not only helps them but it changes the lives of the people that volunteer. We continue to strive to make each trip to Haiti better than the one before it so the people that travel with us not only have a great experience but also make a difference in the lives of the people that we serve.
